Miranda Oosterhof - June 2, 2021

Colleen was a super cool bonus- Mom to me when we were in high school. I always loved seeing her when she worked at the dairy, she always had such a beautiful smile. I think she was the first person I ever met with knuckle tattoos, and I just thought that was the coolest ever. She was always real with us, she didn't buy our teenage bullshit lies, but she never made me feel like my fuckups weren't forgivable. I'm really glad I knew her.
